It's called a Unicase typeface As for the purpose of using them? There is no answer to this. Or rather, the answers are infinite. People use them for the particular project when it meets the needs of the particular project. While typefaces certainly have personalities, a big part of the personality comes from the context of their use.

You may find this answer slightly off-topic, but let's look at what the case mixing means in that particular example rather than in general. To get some context, it's helpful to look at the other varieties of peanut butter offered by this brand. In this context, I think it's clear that each design is trying to convey something about the product's ...

Seeing as this post is like a list of font-creation software, I'd like to add another for everyone to consider. I recently came across it on Kickstarter, and whilst I haven't tried it, it looks quite promising. It's called Prototypo. It's a brand new alternative, and it's crowdfunded! Definitely worth considering in future, though it's currently in ...

Can I just point out that the use of a combination of both have a long history? They are half-uncials) They were rather common in days of yore.

The best way around this is to expand your fonts/any other assets in your SVG that aren't rendering properly when you open it in the browser. What this means is, you need to highlight your text areas and turn them into Illustrator paths instead of leaving them as selectable text. The easiest way to do this is: Select all of your text Go to Object >> ...

I would save a backup with fonts active, and then save another version with fonts converted to outline, saved as .svg format for usage on the web.

A Google search indicates that others have asked as well but I'm not seeing much planned. A project did exist, and received funding to improve the text --- it was implemented already. http://www.linuxfund.org/projects/inkscape/ Here is a Feature Request, but it has gotten very little support. I'd venture to say its because Inkscape is an illustration suite, ...

Most commonly, Semi-Sans, or Semi-Serif are used for a typeface which has a mixture of both. I have, on rare occasions, seen Half-Sans/Serif used as well.
